Since Summer 2003 College of the Desert has used Colleague to make improvements to the student registration and services area. We have grown with Ellucian (formerly Datatel) through several different user interface releases and web integrations. Our students have taken control of their experience through the use of WebAdvisor for registration, payments, transcripts and more. See the descriptions below and follow the links to learn more about the main points of our Administrative Computing area.

Datatel Release 18
Datatel Colleague by Ellucian delivers features specifically developed for higher education. Beyond securely maintaining and managing personal and organizational demographics, you can control activities and events, communications management, and much more. With Colleague, institutions can seamlessly integrate data and applications across the campus enterprise to help you more effectively plan and schedule facilities for future use. You can communicate efficiently with all your constituents, and ultimately save money by automating, tracking, and recording all your correspondence—recruitment letters, financial aid award notifications, alumni donor campaigns, employee applications, and employee benefit notifications, to name a few.​

WebAdvisor WebAdvisor enables your institution to offer a full spectrum of online services through innovative business workflows and sophisticated forms. Community, services, e-commerce, and e-learning offerings are available with a single sign-on — making it hassle free to manage their education. WebAdvisor seamlessly integrates with Datatel Colleague, higher education’s most advanced enterprise resource planning solution, so all the information your constituents need is fed in real-time from one central, secure location.

UI 4.0
User Interface With the release of Colleague’s newest User Interface (UI 4), your daily interaction with Colleague has changed for the better. Colleague now has a powerful interface that incorporates Microsoft Silverlight technology, and brings a new level of functionality to Colleague – context. Having context allows you to easily move from one form to another to complete tasks.

While Ellucian has added a lot to our student experience, it wasn't able to do it all alone. As with many student system packages, there are needs that require third party add-ons.
